Has BT Speedtest changed?

The BT speedtest used to report the potential speed of my line
If I was connected at 3mb but the line supported 7mb I would show the 7mb now it shows the 3mb
So before I would run the BT test, then I would run the MyBroadbandSpeed and speedtest.net tests to see.
After a problem installing a new router that led to too many reboots my connection at the exchange has been cut to 3.7mb and BT is reporting 2.9mb
So has it changed the kind of test it produces?

They must have been tinkering with it (not before time!  Roll eyes) because it now reports upload speed in Mbps instead of  Kbps, but I can't see any other visible changes (certainly not what you're describing.)

Hello
The oldest BT Speedtest  record I have is for 12/02/2012 and it has exactly the same info as you get now.

Thanks Derek
Must be my mistake.
been demoted to 3.7mb now and have been told to wait 3 days without rebooting to get it increased, shame there is not a way to speed this up
